Puppet 3 Beginner's Guide

This book was a great help to me starting out from scratch with Puppet. With limited prior Linux experience I found it an excellent introduction to managing Linux systems and enough information to help me get quickly up-to-speed with a project I'm working on.

It's written in a good style and the hands-on examples to get through worked well and gave a good foundation for becoming comfortable with the technology. Looking at some of the other reviews they comment that if you already have some experience with Puppet then this may not be for you, but funnily enough that's why it's called '...Beginner's Guide'! There is some beginner material available on the PuppetLabs website, but I found the contents of this book complementary to that and also covered some topics not found there.

I'm moving on now to the author's recently released Puppet 3 Cookbook.

A very useful introductory guide. I agonised over whether to buy this or not given quite a bit of commentary suggesting it contained a lot of in-necessarily drawn out explanation that could just as easily be had from the docs and user community. The reality was that it was well worth the cover price and whilst all the information is available by searching (and you certainly need to do that if you want to progress beyond the basics) this book provides a well judged step-by-step progression that will set you on the right path and probably pique your enthusiasm to go further.

Found it easy to understand and it had easy to follow sections. For an introduction book I would recommend it.
